Falcons prediction for 2014 NFC South rankings

18 posts in this topic

Some of the other items from the presser:

 

  • He expects a quick turnaround in 2014
  • Believes that head coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff can get it done.
  • He expects a winning season and the playoffs or more changes would be forth coming.
  • He will continue to spend up to the salary cap to make sure the team is talented.
  • The search for replacements coaches (to replace some asst's that were fired) is under way. “Lots of coaches are anxious to come to Atlanta"
  • The Falcons will not take a skill position player with the 6th pick in the draft.
  • Blank hates “splash” moves and doesn’t plan to make any in free agency. He believes that “winning” sells tickets.

why call a press conference to say this, though?  screams of 'hey look at me! we're still here! pay attention to meeeeee!!!!'

 

btw...if he 'expects a winning season and playoffs' then he wouldn't add the 'or more changes are coming' part.  Sounds more like 'hoping for a winning season and playoffs' is what he was looking for.

i don't know what "changes" specifically refer to but i'd welcome them toying with the idea of firing mike smith

 

he's gotten two top seeds and five straight winning seasons out of a team that's become increasingly unsound fundamentally with each passing year.

Well, having Scott Pioli joining their staff, as a Assistant GM, isn't going to help their cause......

I disagree. He was a big reason you have good contracts on your roster and why KC has the talent they do. Especially on the lines. Which is where we need it

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
